back from NZ...

Huw Stephens Huw Stephens | 17:17 UK time, Wednesday, 29 November 2006

Hello hello, it's good to be back.
A big thanks to Vic Galloway for keeping the show together for the past couple of weeks:) I had a great time in New Zealand, it's a stunning country and the cities are brilliant. I was there taking part in seminars on music and giving my perspective on what's going on at the moment. Never spoken so much in my life, and even in newsagent back home I'm still explaining why I want to buy the milk and cereal as if I'm at a seminar.
Heard lots of ace music in NZ. The scene there is very healthy, with bands like Mint Chicks, Die!Die!Die!, Conan and the Mockasins leading the way for the indie heads, North Shore Pony Club and Shapeshifter on the dance scene, Black Seeds for any Fat Freddy's Drop fans.
I'm playing some NZ tunes on the show tonight, and its a session from the stunning True Adventures too. They're from Norwich, as are our DIY label of the week - Howlback Hum.
Hope you can tune in for a dose of FLASH new music....

    Hi Huw,
    Chris & Gill from the Offbeat indie night in Sheffield here... very interested you've been to New Zealand cos' we are going on hols there in the New Year. Whether we'll find time for anything music related between exploring the wilderness and looking for kiwis and other strange birds is debateable!... but can you recommend any gig venues in Wellington, Christchurch or Dunedin? And do you know of any indie clubs that might welcome a short guest set by a pair of UK indiepop DJs!? Given the rich history of Flying Nun records it'd be like taking coals to Newcastlen, but it'd be quite nice to say we'd DJd on the other side of the globe.
    Any contacts/info gratefully received!
    Thanks for all the great tracks you've uncovered in 2006 - the show's been an inspiration, and is a worthy successor to the great Mr Peel.
    Chris & Gill
